Advisory Board

The Advisory Board acts as a powerful think tank to inform Forum campaigns and our formal representation of the sector to Government.

Current commitments to Government are that the Forum will:

  • Collaboration: Encourage CEOs and C-Suite members at sector firms and their clients to join the Collaborative Zone to share ideas with each other and Government, and volunteer to help those in need of quality advice
  • Shared challenges: Organise free weekly webinars to enable CEOs and C-Suite members to share business, management and personal challenges from the pandemic
  • Innovation: Help sector firms to get ready for new technologies through an ESRC-funded Next Gen Services collaborative design project, in partnership with four business schools
  • Governance: Seek a ‘healthy’ balance between supply and demand for firmwide leaders and other advisers as independent NEDs at corporates and other organisations as this should result in better Board decisions and a boost to UK productivity
